This stunning dress set was made from red faille in the 1950s. The dress was cut in a classic 1950s silhouette with a tight fitting waist and a flared skirt. The wide straps create a flattering V neckline and beautiful panel work ensures a tailored fit. The bust of the dress has been decorated with beautiful bead and sequin details which add a lovely detail. The dress fastens with an original metal zipper at the back and is partially lined in cream rayon. The matching coat was cut in a loose, open fronted swing silhouette that falls in beautiful voluminous folds. The collarless neckline highlights the bust of the dress and the shorter length sleeves have been finished off with large turn up cuffs. Inside, the coat is lined in cream rayon and bears the collectible maker’s label for Lilli Diamond of California.

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits

or

2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
